PTI Make It Monday Challenge #278

I was highlighted in this MIM challenge! Woot Woot! You can read the PTI newsletter to see more!

Today was a wonderful day of creativity! My back surgery is healing nicely and it is making me happier than a bird with a french fry! This week's MIM challenge is to make a Window Chipboard Sentiment.

I created a card front using Tim Holtz distress paper and inks.  Splattered a little water for some pretty variations.
I sprayed the card front with Glitter Dust which I LOVE.  One of it's properties is stiffening of the paper and the other is to make a beautiful sheen and sparkle.
It proved VERY useful when opening the card so the die cut moves smoothly through from the front to the inside.
I cut out the "sending" banner from the Big Hugs Stamp Set with my Scan n Cut 2, which is the first time I've used it that way.  Dies always give a much nicer edge so I won't ever use the SNC2 if I have a die for an image, that's for sure.
 I used one of the Big Hugs dies to make the window.  I actually have PTI chipboard, so I didn't need to layer the cardstock like Stephanie, and it worked out well.  I added a simple stamped sentiment inside the card to finish the sentiment.  Add a few sequins and there you have it, a gorgeous card!
How I love creating again! I know I've said it a few times, but when you get back to what makes you happiest, you can't help but shout it from the roof tops.  :)
